If you think you’ve tried the best bites in Wellington, read this and then think again.
Thanks to the likes of Wellingnoms and Capital Eats, I’m never lost on where to go for some grub. And because of the thousands of cafe’s, restaurants, diners and takeaways in the Capital City I rarely try the same place twice, but when you find food as good as below it’s difficult to stay away.
When you’re feeling hungover or just extremely ravenous, head to Five Borough’s in Mount Vic. It’s unlike anywhere else in the city with a relaxed diner feel and mountainous portions. I was amazed at myself for finishing this one off.
When in doubt go for an order of avo on toast. It’s one of those understated yet delicious snacks that always hits the spot. This version steps it up a notch with chilli flakes, red onion, coriander and lime.
I’m yet to come across a sushi joint that hits this place off the top of my list. A lunchtime favourite. It’s fresh, has a good selection of sushi and gives away free miso every 5 stamps. I’m always guaranteed to double up on my most loved, seared salmon nigiri.
Make it a sit in at Sal’s and soak up the NY decor and sports bar atmosphere. Go for the dough balls and wings to start and then for the main event choose one of their US inspired pizzas. We went for the whole pie. Obviously, our eyes were too big for our belly because we only managed to eat half. It was worth a shot.
It happens once a month and tickets sell out fast so get your name down pronto. If you love a roast you’ll ADORE this! If the feast isn’t enough to satisfy you they light up the open fire and put on a live band. The perfect way to spend a Sunday in my eyes.
Good enough to dedicate a post to this brunch hang out. It’s a real winner when the food taste’s as good as it looks. There’s just something about red onions and salmon that does it for me, along with the perfect poached egg on top. My favourite brunch combo, done right by this Lower Hutt gem.
You probably get the hint by now… yup I’m pretty obsessed with smoked salmon! BUB has not long opened its doors on Cuba Street and what a blessing! I’m making my way through the bagel board, the Triple M next I reckon.
